My name is George Mavitzis and I am a destination wedding photographer and lucky enough to call both Montreal and Athens my home cities. Canadian born of Greek heritage I have traveled to and photographed many of the Greek Islands. For more than twenty plus years I have been photographing weddings and I estimate that I have photographed over a thousand of these beautiful celebrations. A career and passion that I have now opened up to two continents. Situated in Athens you can say my backyard is the Mediterranean and it's majestic Greek Islands. Two islands of which I visit often would be Santorini and Patmos and I love the rest as well!
Spending so many years traveling and living on Greece's islands I am always in awe of the beautiful lightning and excellent conditions to host a wedding. The truly genuine nature and hospitality of the people from these islands has infected the souls of many travelers. Many are now bringing their families and friends to share in their special day. It's extremely heart warming to see.
I will be honest I rarely put much thought into the possibility of photographing weddings here, as I have a very successful wedding studio in Montreal and my season has always been full. Now that my dream has come true and I am sharing my time between Montreal and Athens, I have decided to dedicate two full summer months and one fall month each year to Santorini wedding couples. I will be there this 2017 summer and fall, photographing a few couple shoots, some in June-July and then again in September. With 2018 dates now available please feel free to share with me below.
Where are you with your wedding plans so far? Wedding photography and or couple shoot?
